Fall is here! With the Toronto International Film Festival upon us, we wanted to share a few secret beauty items from Shoppers Drug Mart and beautyboutique.ca that help us get Red Carpet-ready.
Our Beauty Editor Amy Pigeon selected some products that will do the trick! Here they are.
IDC Integral Moisturizing Micellar Cleansing Milk
The key to any glam look is beautiful, healthy and youthful-looking skin. A fantastic cleanser is, of course, crucial for a clean and flawless canvas, and we love IDC Cleansing Milk for a silky-smooth face.
This is a fantastic 4-in-1 cleanser that not only removes makeup and cleanses the skin, but also hydrates and protects it at the same time. Use this milk before your bedtime skincare regimen to clear away impurities collected throughout the day or in the morning to start your day off with a supple, hydrated face.

No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum
After cleansing your face, lock-in the fresh feeling with No7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum to further enhance fresh and youthful-looking skin.
This formula has a fresh scent and feels super lightweight. Not only is this serum wonderful for reducing the appearance of fine lines and toning skin, it also protects against the elements, creating a velvety and smooth base for your moisturizer or makeup.
If reducing the signs of aging didn’t get your attention—the radiance this serum creates for your complexion surely will! No7 serum is essential for your Red Carpet skincare prep.

Joe Fresh Colour Correcting Jumbo Crayons
Colour correcting is a must for a flawless visage on the Red Carpet, and Joe Fresh has you covered with three shades of Colour Correcting Jumbo Crayons that work wonders under your foundation or concealer. The yellow crayon is perfect to correct dark circles under the eyes, the lavender for hyper pigmentation, and the green for any redness caused by irritation or blemishes.
These colour correctors come in a super convenient stick/crayon format, which is the perfect size to carry in your purse to a big event or when you’re on-the-go.

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss
Nothing says “Red Carpet glam” like a flirty and seductive pout. Glittery lips are super on-trend right now and Soap and Glory’s Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss fits the bill with a gloss formula saturated with glitter (our favourite colours are Candy Queen, Nude Star and Spun Sugar).
The name of this gloss says it all: these glosses enhance lip size for a sexy mother pucker of a pout (no needles with lip-filler necessary).
With Superfill and Lipswell technology, these glosses cause a tingling-feeling on the lips that naturally make lips appear larger and enhance that sought-after, faux-lip injection effect.

göt2b Volumaniac Bodifying Mousse & Hairspray
Big, sexy hair is always a good choice for your Red Carpet blowout (fantastic smelling hair is a bonus, too).
göt2b Volumaniac Bodifying Mousse & Hairspray are a volumizing match made in heaven for added lift from the roots. Bonus: they feature a delicious, fresh apple scent.
Apply the mousse from root to tip to damp hair before your blowout and pair it with the Volumaniac hairspray with a bit of teasing action for serious, 24-hour lasting volume and hold.
